The second in a fantastically funny new chapter book series by internationally bestselling author Nancy Krulik and her daughter, Amanda Elizabeth Burwasser, Soccer Shocker is destined to win tons of fans.
When Mom tells Logan that Java is joining his soccer team, the Purple Wombats, he’s not thrilled. It’s a lot of work teaching his new robot cousin how to act like a human—and keeping him out of trouble—and Logan needs a break.
Still, being programmed for success means that Java’s also great at scoring. He might just turn the Wombats into a championship team, beating Sherry and Jerry Silverspoon and their Red Polar Bears . . . if he’d just let the other kids play, too. After being replaced as the Wombats’ MVP, Logan’s had enough.
But when Java gets wet and goes on the fritz, can the whole team—even a short-circuiting Java—come together to score the winning goal?
